The mixed-voice chamber chorus known as the Cascadian Chorale is famed for singing innovative new works, and their latest concert, dubbed The Human Heart: Smiles, Tears, Laughter, only adds to that reputation by spotlighting contemporary composers, many of them local. This collection of emotionally resonant pieces includes a newly commissioned work by Giselle Wyers, reflecting the pain and hope of children in war, along with Love Letters, Bern Herbolsheimer's rumination on romantic joys and heartaches and Eric Lane Barnes' Lambscapes, which gives a hilarious twist to an old nursery rhyme. Other selections turn to Wordsworth, Burns and Frost to find fresh understanding of the human heart, while Abraham Kaplan and William Billing explore the complex emotions surrounding death.
